Bike & Sail Tours
Sail the coast … in true Dutch style
Enjoy a sailing holiday and cycle break all in one - what an awesome adventure and unforgettable way to experience the wild, wonderful and classic sights of Holland and its North Sea Islands!
At Holland-by-Bike, we offer a great selection of classic sailing ships including clippers and schooners to enjoy as your floating home on circular bike and sail tour routes around the Ijsselmeer and Wadden See areas of North Holland and Friesland.
Experience the thrill of tall ship sailing and even get a little hands on if you wish. Encounter amazing scenery and pedal off to explore harbours, villages and landscapes at your own pace. Whatever you choose to do, you can relax and make the most of the real comfort and convenience of travelling to different places without needing to keep re-packing your things!
From the century-old clipper, Elizabeth, the schooners, Mare fan Fryslân and Wapen fan Fryslân, to the impressive tall ship, Soverein, each vessel very much has its own character and style of comfort. All the sailing ships however have en-suite cabins, a large salon and lots of room for relaxing on deck.
Whether you’re clocking up the historic harbours of the Dutch Golden Age, watching seals on the sandbanks of the Wadden See, discovering whole islands or former island villages, all our bike and sail holidays operate on a full board basis with breakfast and an evening meal on board prepared by the experienced crew. A packed lunch is available to accompany your day rides on the bike and in the evenings, there is often a chance to explore the towns or cities where the vessel is moored overnight.
